Cardin Statement on President Trump Calling Jews “Disloyal” for Supporting Democrats

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Special Representative on Anti-Semitism, Racism, and Intolerance for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Parliamentary Assembly, released the following on President Trump’s accusation that Jewish Americans who support Democrats are “disloyal.”

 “President Trump continues to give oxygen to anti-Semites around the world by using tropes about the loyalty of Jewish Americans. This must end. It is reprehensible for anyone to engage in such language. Making Israel a partisan wedge is not in our national security interest or Israel’s.”
